This bridge has been in Calgary all my life. It has stone lions on guard. It is is the gateway to downtown Calgary. The only problem is traffic patterns change during rush hours which can confuse our visitors so you must be aware of this.The bridge is walk able and crosses over the bow river. If you energetic you could spend a couple of hours on it looking at the scenery or downtown Calgary.

Now just over a hundred years old, this is Calgary's most beautiful bridge. Not only is it a critical link for traffic going to or leaving downtown (watch for the tricky reverse lanes during rush hour!), it is highly popular with downtown joggers and walkers doing a loop over lunch hour. It is beautiful to behold summer, winter, fall or spring, and day or night. Pedestrians are confined to the top deck, but vehicles have a cool access on the lower deck, which creates a direct link between Memorial Drive north and Riverfront Avenue south - very handy, but very narrow.

This is a historical bridge and overlooks the river. One can take a slow stroll here to take in the sight as well as walk to the hill which will overlook the downtown.

Bridge serves it purpose for vehicles and pedestrians alike.

What else does one say about a 100 year old bridge.

The hike up the hill is a good cardiac workout. I found I had time to park afew blocks in off Center Street and walked downtown just because I could one sunny day, the hick back took abit more effort.
